"I ran for President promising transparency, and I meant what I said."Oh Really! But on the easiest transparency pledge he made, the president has fallen consistently short. Here is yet another newspaper story on his failure to post bills on WhiteHouse.gov five days before he signs them:
Mr. Obama last week signed four bills, each just a day or two after Congress passed and sent it over to him. The White House said it posted links from its Web site to Congress' legislative Web site about a week before Mr. Obama signed the measures, but transparency advocates say that doesn't match the president's pledge to give Americans time to comment on the final version he is about to sign.
